Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders committed to 17 Global Goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years. End extreme poverty. Fight inequality & injustice. And fix climate change.

The Global Goals for Sustainable Development have emerged from an extensive global conversation about our common aspirations for the future of our planet. ABM and our partners have been part of the consultations leading to the development of the Global Goals which affirm the projects already being undertaken by ABM’s partners around the world.

We join with people all over the globe in welcoming the renewed focus on sustainable development and recommit ourselves to the difficult but critical work of ending extreme poverty, fighting inequality & injustice and fixing climate change.
